Windows 10 April 2018 Update lands today

Windows 10 April 2018 Update lands today

The Timeline feature is probably the most interesting one, as it allows users to resume the app states of the apps they used on different (but connected) machines. However, the company found some issues pertaining to the new package and it chose to postpone the update release. "With our latest major release - the Windows 10 April 2018 Update - we want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time", Yusuf Mehdi, the corporate vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, wrote in a blog post on Friday. People making use of this feature should probably also keep in mind to mute their phones as well. It will be available for download beginning Monday, April 30.

To this end, Windows 10 users will get access to Apple Music courtesy of the iTunes app, with the ability to listen to millions of songs on the Apple Music streaming service, including their own music libraries whether they're online or offline - all ad-free.

The latest update features a host of new tools to make usage easier.

Microsoft's trying to excite end-users with a new feature called "Focus Assist" created to help you "get things done without distractions, like social media or other notifications".

As it the case with every Windows 10 update, the rollout will happen in a phased manner over the weeks. Focus Assist helps users stay focused on a particular activity without being interrupted such as notifications, emails etc. Voice commands now improve upon Dictation and better management of smart home from Windows PC using Cortana.

Here Comes Facebook's Annual Apps Fest. There's Just One Problem
Facebook , and their CEO, have said that GDPR is helpful because it will set a global standard. The ongoing process is testing Facebook's developer relationships.

The new update includes a "Timeline" feature aimed at saving time by more easily retrieving documents or unfinished work from the previous 30 days.

Microsoft's digital assistant, Cortana, will still be there, with new controls for the smart home.

-The April update brings a variety of new features and improvements to Microsoft Edge - including mute-a-tab, full-screen reading, clutter-free printing, grammar tools and autofill on web forms - all saving users time while browsing the web.

It even works across multiple platforms so you can serach for things you've been working on when using a phone, tablet or laptop. This feature will be available across apps, as well as the Windows 10 text field, and is activated by pressing the "Win + H" command.

Notably, the April 2018 Update was widely expected to launch earlier in the month.
